DKED FROM DAUGHTERS OF RICHARD SPARROW

RICHARD AND MERCY SPARROW'S CHILDREN 
AND THEIR MARRIAGES 

By George Ernest Bowman 

The illustration facing this page is a reproduction of an 
ancient deed presented to this Society by Mr. Stanley W. 
Smith. This deed has never been put on record, and its 
preservation in such excellent condition is very fortunate, as 
it proves that six of the seven daughters of Richard and Mercy 
(Cob) Sparrow of East ham were married before 4 June, 1740, 
and gives us the names of their husbands. An abstract of 
this deed will be found at the end of this article. 

Richard Sparrow and Mercy Cob were married at Eastham, 
4 February, 1 701/2. Richard was a son of Capt. Jonathan 
Sparrow by his second wife, Hannah (Prence) Mayo, therefore 
a grandson of Gov. Thomas Prence by his first wife, Patience 2 
Brewster {Elder Willia7u l ). Mercy Cob was a daughter of 
James and Sarah (Lewis) Cob of Barnstable. James Cob died 
about 1695, and his widow Sarah became the third wife of 
Capt. Jonathan Sparrow in 1698. 

Richard and Mercy Sparrow had two sons and seven daugh- 
ters, all born at Eastham. The record of the marriage and 
of the births of eight of the children, Richard, Rebecca, Mercy, 
Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Mary and Priscilla, were printed in 
our seventh volume. The birth of the ninth child and the 
death of the father are recorded together in the Eastham 
Records [Births, etc., 1701-1781, page 8] as follows: 

" Jonathan Sparrow the Son of Richard and Mercy Sparrow 
was Born at Eastham on the 17 th day of December annodomini 
1724 

" Richard Sparrow Sen r dyed on the thirteenth day of april 
annodomini 1728" 

As this ninth child, Jonathan, is not mentioned in his 



2 Richard and Mercy Sparrow s Children 

father's will, dated 23 February, 1727/8, it is evident that he 
lived but a short time. Of the eight children mentioned in 
the will, an abstract of which is here given, the son Kichard 
and six of the daughters were married at Eastham, as follows : * 

" Richard Sparrow Jun r " and Hannah Shaw, 2G September, 
I723- 

Richard Mayo and Rebecca Sparrow, 26 December, 1728. 

Zebulon Young and Mercy Sparrow, 22 February, 1725/6. 

Edmund Freeman and Sarah Sparrow, 25 September, 1729. 

"Josiah Cook jun r " and Hannah Sparrow, 11 February, 
1730/1. 

Elisha Doane and Elizabeth Sparrow, 14 March, 1733/4. 

Isaac Smith and Mary Sparrow, 9 March, 1737/8. 

This " Richard Sparrow Jun r " was positively identified as 
the son of Richard and Mercy by means of the town, church 
and cemetery records. The will of Richard, senior, mentions 
his "Daughter Mercy Young," and Zebulon Young signed the 
deed as a grantor. The other five daughters and their husbands 
signed the deed as grantors. 

The seventh daughter, Priscilla, did not -join in the deed to 
her brother, and I have not yet been able to determine the 
disposal of her seventh part. The will of her father provided 
that the land should be u Equallily Divided Among them y* 
shall be surviveing when I shall Decease," therefore this sale of 
six sevenths proves that Priscilla survived her father and became 
the owner of the other seventh part. 

The intention of marriage of David Snow and Priscilla 
Sparrow, " boath of Eastham," was entered 10 January, 1746/7, 
and they, again called " both of Eastham," were married 5 March, 
1747-f These two records may refer to Priscilla, the daughter 
of Richard and Mercy Sparrow, but I have, not found any evi- 
dence to prove that it was Richard's daughter who became 
the wife of David Snow. There were other Sparrow families 
in Eastham at this time, and David Snow's wife may have 
belonged to one of them.

RECORDS OF THE FIRST CHURCH IN 
MARSHFIELD, MASS. 

Transcribed from the Original Records 
By George Ernest Bowman 

The oldest known records of the First Church in Marshfield, 
Mass., are found in a small note book, in which Rev. Edward 
Tompson made the first entry in 1696. Mr. Tompson's state- 
ment, that he could not recover the names of the female mem- 
bers of the church, indicates that if any earlier records had 
been made they had been lost. Mr. Tompson's last entry was 
the record of an admission to membership, on 4 February, 
1704/5, the next entry being the record of his death, on 
16 March, 1704/5.

44 Records of First Church, of Scihiate t Mass. 



RECORDS OF THE FIRST CHURCH OF 
SCITUATE, MASS. 

{Continued from Vol. X, p. 230) 

In this issue we give all the marriages recorded by Rev. 
Nathaniel Pitcher. We have not printed the dates in vertical 
columns, as originally written, but have followed the method 
adopted for printing his baptisms. In each date the first 
number is the day of the month. 

The first leaf of. this marriage record is badly worn, but a 
careful study of the chronological sequence of the marriages, 
and a comparison with the original town records, has made it 
possible to complete each record with certainty. All portions 
of entries not now on the original church record have been 
enclosed in brackets.

RIDER-RYDER NOTES 

By the Editor 

The numerous errors which have been printed about Samuel 1 
Rider of Yarmouth, and his descendants, have made it necessary 
to devote a great deal of time to correcting these mistakes, by 
means of the original records. It is probable that few families 
have been more strangely distorted. Each writer seems to have 
added some error to those of his predecessors, until the climax is 
reached in "The Pioneers of Massachusetts," * which makes five 
errors in the five sentences devoted to Samuel 1 Rider, and on 
another page prints "Zephaniah" Rider instead of " Zachariah." 

In the following notes every reference is to the original 
record, which has been, in each case, personally re-examined 
by the Editor since he noticed the errors referred to. 

Samuel 1 Rider's name does not appear either as a freeman 
or as a proprietor of Yarmouth under date of 7 January, 1638/9, 
as stated in the " Pioneers." On that date his name appears 
only in a list "of those that are pposed to take up their free- 
dome at Yarmouth " \ 

There is no record that Samuel 1 Rider held the rank of 
captain, as stated in the "Pioneers." He held the rank of ser- 
geant in April, 1653 ; was appointed lieutenant of the Yarmouth 
company in June, 1653 ; was reduced to the ranks 6 March, 
1654/5 ; and was re-appointed lieutenant 1 June, 1658. On 
the margin, opposite the record of his reduction, is a note stat- 
ing that he was re-instated at the Court held 5 June, 1655. 
There is no record of any Court being held on that date, and 

* Boston, 1900. t Plymouth Colony Records, Court Orders, i : 183. 



50 Rider- Ryder Notes 

the wording of the record of I June, 1658, is conclusive evi- 
dence that he had not been re-instated previously. It seems 
to be clear, therefore, that the date in this marginal note is an 
error. From 1658 until 1670 there appears no record of the 
appointment of any other lieutenant. In 1670, John Marchant, 
Sr., was promoted to that rank. In March, 1683/4, knd °f 
" Leift Ryder Deceased " is mentioned.* As the probate rec- 
ords show, Samuel 1 Ryder died between 20 November, and 
9 December, 1679. 

In another article, in a later issue, we shall show that it was 
Samuel 2 Rider, not his father, Samuel 1 , as stated in the " Pio- 
neers," who married Sarah Bartlett and had a son Samuel born 
in 1657. [See " Notes " on page 63 of this issue.] 

The will of Samuel 1 Rider makes a bequest to his son John 2 
Rider, whose name is omitted from the list of legatees given 
in the " Pioneers." 

The " Pioneers " also errs in stating that Edward 1 Sturgis 
married, second, " Mary, widow of Zephaniah Rider of Yar- 
mouth," giving as authority for the statement the Barnstable 
County Probate Records, II : 14. The ante-nuptial agreement 
there recorded is beautifully written and perfectly distinct, leav- 
ing no opportunity for any doubt as to the reading. The name 
of Mary's first husband reads " Zechariah Rider." Especial 
emphasis is given to this correction, because no '• Zephaniah " 
Rider has been found on the early records. 

In this first installment of Rider-Ryder Notes we give 
abstracts, made by the Editor from the original records, of the 
wills of Samuel 1 Rider and his sons Zachariah 2 (whose widow 
married Edward 1 Sturgis) and John 2 ; the settlement of the 
estate of Samuel 3 (Jo/ui 2 , Samuel 1 ) ; four depositions relating 
to the estate of Samuel 1 ; and the record of the death, at 
Plymouth, of Anne the widow of Samuel 1 .

NOTES 

Samuel 2 Rider's Two Wives. The Editor regrets to announce that 
he has proved that Samuel 2 Rider (Samuel 1 ) of Plymouth, who married 
in 1656 Sarah Bartlett 3 ,(J/«r)/ 2 Warren, Richard ' l ), and the Samuel Rider 
who married Lydia Tilden in 1680 were not father and son. They were 
one person. It will, therefore, be necessary to cancel all claims of May- 
flower descent through Samuel 2 Rider and his wife Lydia Tilden, as 
neither had Mayflower ancestry, so far as known. The proofs of this 
correction will be published in our next issue. 

Isaac Simmons' Wife Martha. The Editor has identified Martha 
the wife of Isaac Simmons 4 (Mercy Pabodie*, Elizabeth 1 Alden, John 1 ). 
She was the daughter of Benjamin and Elizabeth Chandler of Duxbury, 
and was not descended from John Alden, as has been claimed. An 
important article on this subject will be printed in an early issue. 

Seth Knowles, Revolutionary Soldier. From the original docu- 
ment, loaned by Mr. Henry Arey : " I Seth Knowles of Orleans in the 
County of Barnstable Laboring man .... do constitute .... Timothy 
Bascom of Orleans .... Trading man to be my lawful Attorn .... to ask 
for Demand and Receive all that is allowed to me as a soldiar Dureing 
the Late Ameriacan War wharein I Sarvid as a prvit soldiar under Geniril 
Washington " 

Dated 2 December, 1801. Signed "Seth knowls " Witnessed by 
"Thomas Arey" and k ' Enoch Hinkly" Acknowledged in Barnstable 
County, 2 December, 1801, before Isaac Sparrow, Justice of the Peace.

The Scrooby Manor-house Fund. We have been requested to 
print the following statement: 

" Owing to the recent financial depression, followed as it was by a 
presidential election, it proved impracticable to raise enough money for 
the purchase of the Manor-house estate by Christmas, when the matter had 
to be settled. Those, therefore, who have pledged subscriptions will not 
be called upon to pay them, and those who have paid subscriptions will 
have their money returned. 

(Signed) Samuel B. Capen Morton Dexter" 

* The year 1777 is given on the town records, and an administrator on his 
estate was appointed in July, 1778. — Editor.

A RARE BROADSIDE ON THE DEATH OF 
CAPTAIN ANTHONY COLLAMpRE 

By permission of one of our members, Mrs. Bailey Hall 
Hitchcock, who owns the original, we here reprint the rare 
broadside on the death of Captain Anthony Collamore of Scit- 
uate, Mass. The author of this " Threnodia," Deodat Lawson, 
was the pastor of the Second Church of Scituate. The original 
broadside, which was printed at Boston by Bartholomew Green, 
as shown by the accompanying illustration, is about twelve and 
three-fourths inches high by ten and one-fourth inches wide. 




THRENODIA, 

Or a Mournfull Remembrance, of the much to be Lamented 
Death of the Worthy & Pious 

Capt. ANTHONY COLLAMORE, 

Who together with Five Persons more, were Cast-away in a 

SLOOP, going from Scituate Harbour towards Boston, 

On the 1 6. Day of December : 1693. 



I 



"^HE Great Jehovah is the Lord and King, 

Both in the ILeav'ns 6° on the Earth &* Sea ; 
What things Pleas Him in each to pass doth bring 
Nor can He in His Will resisted be. 



He in His Fist retaines the Boist'rous Winds, 
And Raging Waters in a Garment binds. 

65 



66 Broadside on the Death of Captain Anthony Collarnore 

Tis but to Loose His Little Finger then, 

And the most Furious blasts do Issue thence ; 

Enough to Terrify the stoutest Men, 

Nor can they find against it a Defence. 
'Tis But to Slack the binding of the Seas, 
And they will soon accomplish what He Pleas. 

December last upon the Sixteenth day, 

Within the Harbour lay at Scitnate ; 

Some Loaden Boats to Boston bound away, 

Which for Fair Wind and Weather there did wait. 
Amongst the Rest was Captain Collamove, 
Whose sad disaster, we must now Deplore. 

Some Boats with Sailes Expanded led the way, 

Out of the Harbour ; and did fairly glide ; 

Thus one by one stood out into the Bay, 

With Wind at East North East and Flowing Tide. 

The Captain in the Rere did Floise up Saile, 

And hasted after with a Steddy Gale. 

He did his best with speed to quit the Shore, 
And seemed in his way to Prosper well ; 
He Lufft np to the Wind and North-ward bore, 
For near an Hour as Spectators tell : 

That so he might be gaining of the Wind, 

And to his PbH the fairer .Passage rind. 

But Dangers great did quickly him Surprize, 

The Clouds did gather and. obscure the Sun ; 

Winds whistled, Snow came thick, and Seas did rise; 

And He was at a loss which way to run : 
As did appear to some that were before, 
Who quickly after, saw the Boat no more. 

With him Five Persons more Embarqued were, 

Two Me?i, one Woman, and two Ladds beside : 

None did since that alive on Shore appear ; 

But were all Drowned in the Ocean wide. 
No more but two are yet to this day found, 
Which doth the hearts of their Relations wound. 

Whether some hidden Rock with fatal stroke, 

At once gave Final stop unto their Course ; 

By which their Stem was/amm'd, and Boughs were Broke, 

Not able to withstand so great a force. 

Thus some conceive who saw and view'd the Rack 
Which quickly to the Shore was hurled back. 



Broadside on the Death of Captain Anthony Collamore 67 

Or whether Loaden over deep with Wood , 
The Swelling Waves did lill her by degrees ; 
If then their Frozen Pump would do no good, 
They soon became a Prey unto the Seas : 

Which Violently over them did go, 

And bore them down, into the deeps below. 

What happ'ned to them we can only guess, 

Because none of them did Survive to tell ; 

Nor can we think what Anguish did Possess, 

Their SOULS, when this Disaster them befell. 
We humbly must Adore GOD'S Providence, 
Who in the Deeps, His Judgments doth dispense. 

One Ephraim Turner near the Fatal place, 

Was cast upon the Shore and next day found ; 

Most sorely batter 'd on his die ml and dare, 

Who decently was Laid into the ground. 
Relations of the Rest did search the Shore, 
For thirteen dayes but they could find no more. 

But on the Fourteenth day one did espie, 

A Corps he judg'd was Captain Collamave ; 

Yet could not know him at a Certainty, 

By any thing, but by the Cloaths he wore. 
His Form and Visage utterly was lost, 
Having by Waves on Rocks been so long toss'd. 

His Friends, his Neighbours, and .Relations all, 
Prepare his Funeral to Solemnize ; 
His Souhliers also at the mournfull call, 
Appear with Drooping hearts and Dripping eyes. 

With many Tears they laid him in the dust, 

To wait the Resurrection of the Just. 

And now although Relations of the Rest, 
Know their own Sorrows and Distress of mind ; 
While for the quieting their troubled Brest, 
They in the Creature no relief can find. 

Our Duty binds us all to Sympathize, 

With such as Mourn in their Adversities. 

But Publick Persons are a Publick loss, 
Because more usefull, and more Eminent ; 
They in their places were the greater cross, 
And the more sad Occasion to Lament. 

The Death of Collamore we must bewaile, 

Our Glory's going when the Faithfull faile. 



68 Broadside on the Death of Captain Anthony Col I amove 

What Offices he bore of any kind, 
He did adorn with Carrige full of Grace ; 
His Modest, Humble, Condescending mind, 
Could freely yield to any in their Place. 

To all Degrees above him and below, 

His rightly Order'd Courtesy did How. 

Unto this Province and the Government, 
He was a Faithfnll and a Constant Friend ; 
In all the troubles which they under-went, 
And what he had, was willing to Expend : 

For the Promotion of the Publick good, 

At any -time in what he understood. 

In Scituate let each Inhabitant, 
Greatly lament this worthy Person's fall ; 
Both Rich and L J oor his Courtesy will want, 
Who still was ready to oblige them all. 

It was to many by Experience known, 

He valu'd others good before his own. 

He was the Captain of the Warlike train, 

Love was his Banner, Love was his defence ; 

Their Chearfull Service was return'd again, , 

His Acceptation was their Recompence. 

In that Great Company Command he bore, 
Where Mustered two hundred men and more. 

Vq. Judgment sound, in Life Upright withall, 

A Zealous Member of the Church was he ; 

His Studies and Endeavours were not small, 

That so CLLRIST'S Kingdom might Enlarged be. 
A Deacon also Faithfull to his trust, 
'Po do that onely which was right and Just. 

The North Society in Scituate, 

Hath lost a Leading Man, and Loving Friend ; 

Who ready was with I^erson and Estate, 

On ev'ry good Occasion help to lend. 

His Care and Conscience plainly did appear, 
To settle and maintain GOD^S Worship there. 

A Faithfull constant Husband to his Wife, 
He also Tender was and Provident ; 
True Peace they Cherished, and banisht Strife, 
Enjoying what they had with good Content. 

GOD^S Blessing on their care and Industry, 

Did yield them Comfort and Prosperity. 



Broadside on the Death of Captain Anthony Co/tamore 69 

A Father carefull of his Children too, 
Whose Love to Souls and Bodies did Extend ; 
He spared not the best that he could do, 
In Warning them to mind their latter end. 

He did his just Commands meekly Dispense, 

And they did humbly yield Obedience. 

He was a Master full of Gentleness, 
Whose care it was things honest to Provide ; 
Obliging thus his Servants Faithfullness, 
As he did in their diligence Confide. 

So that to Serve him we may well Conclude 

Was rather Freedom than a Servitude. 

But GOD hath by his Sov'raign Providence, 
Of such an Useful! Man this place bereft ; 
A deep Affecting and Afflicting sense, 
Is well becoming each one that is left.. 

We all in his remove a loss sustain, 

Which sure GOD onely can -make up again. 

Since therefore All things come alike to All, 
This Comfort in our Mourning doth remain ; 
Though Duty binds us to lament his fall, 
Yet in our Loss, He hath the greater Gain. 

For Dying in the LOUD, His Labours cease, 

And of such Upright Men, 7'he end is Peace. 

The Old and Young this Awfull Sudden stroke, 
Doth Testify with loudest Vehemence ; 
God tryes by others DEATH us to Provoke, 
While it is Day to work with dilligence. 

Let then both HigJi and Low the Rich and Poor, 

Lament the DEATH of Captain Collamare.

the bank so the same course to the last ebb, always reserving 
a convenient cartway out of the neck on the upland thro' gates

right in the cedar-swamp, & one half of my meadow I bought 
of M r Abraham Samson & my Gotom lot."

that I now live on that layeth to the eastward of that old wall- 
fence above-mentioned with all the buildings that are mine upon 
it" also "one half of my wood lots, & one third of my cedar- 
swamp, & the meadow that was my fathers, at wood-island, and

Samuel 2 Rider of Plymouth Had Two Wives 



SAMUEL 2 RIDER OF PLYMOUTH HAD TWO WIVES, 
SARAH BARTLETT AND LYDIA TILDEN 

By (Jkurge Ernest Bowman 

As announced in the January issue, the Editor has proved 
that Samuel 2 Rider {Samuel 1 ) of Plymouth, who married Sarah 
Bartlett 3 {Mary- Warren, Richard 1 ) on 23 December, 1656,* 
and the Samuel Rider who married Lydia Tilden at Taunton, 
14 June, i68o,f were not father and son. They were one and 
the same person, and Samuel 2 Rider's children by his second 
wife, Lydia Tilden, were not descended from any Mayflower 
passenger, so far as known. 

Samuel 2 Rider married, first, Sarah Bartlett, as stated, and 
had a son Samuel born at Plymouth, 18 November, 16574 
This son Samuel, it has been claimed, married Lydia Tilden 
in 1680. But the record of his birth is the only record yet 
found which can be connected with this child, and the proof 
is absolute that the 1680 marriage was the second marriage 
of the father. 

Samuel 2 Rider's death is recorded as follows : 

"Samuel Rider Deceased July 18 th 171 5" [Town Reds., 
1:205] 

" Samuell Rider Sen 1 ' July 18 th in y e [§] year of his Age" 
[Church Reds., in list of " Members Dyed" in 1715] 

" M r Samuel Ryder, who dec d July y u [||] 171 5 about y e 
85 th year of his age" [Gravestone on Burial Hill] 

From the gravestone and church records we learn that 
Samuel 2 Rider, Sr., was born about 1630; and his will, printed 
herewith, shows that he left a widow Lydia and thirteen 
children. 

Lydia (Tilden) Rider was buried in the old cemetery at 
Manomet, in Plymouth. " Mr s Lydia Rider Widdow of m r 
Sam 11 Rider" died 17 September, 1740, ''in y e 83 d " year of 
her age. This record from her gravestone agrees with the 
date of birth of Lydia, the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth 



* Ante, III : no, 116. 
t Ibid., p. 19. 



t Plyra. Col. Marriages, Births, etc., p. 8S. 
§The ago was not recorded. 



|| In Kingman's "Epitaphs from Hurial Hill" the day of the month has been 
inserted, but a personal examination shows that the day was never cut on the 
stone. 



Samuel' 2, Rider of Plymouth Had Two Wives 183 

(Bourne) (Waterman) Tilden, who was born 26 April, 1658,* 
and Thomas Tilden, in his will, dated 1 February, 1704, gives 
"to my Daughter Lidia Rider twenty shillings over and above 
the Portion I have Formerly Given her."f 

Since the Samuel, " Sen* ", who died in 1715, was born 
about 1630 and left a widow Lydia and eleven of the twelve 
children recorded to Samuel and Lydia (Tilden) Rider,! ^ lH 
clear that Lydia's husband was not the child born in 1657. 
Moreover we find in the Plymouth First Church records, in a 
list of members admitted in 1692, " Lydia (second) wife of 
Samuel Rider." The word " (second) " is enclosed in paren- 
theses in the original. It was interlined and a caret inserted 
between " Lydia" and "wife" all in the same ink — and by 
the same person who made the original entry. This- interline- 
ation was evidently made at the same time as the original entry. 

Since Lyclia was Samuel 2 Rider's second wife, all children 
not by her must have been by his first wife, Sarah Bartlett. 
As already stated, Sarah's son Samuel does not appear on the 
records after his birth is entered, but Samuel 2 and Lydia gave 
the name Samuel to their son born 26 July, i688,§ and it is 
probable that Sarah's son Samuel was not then living. 

Lydia's son Samuel survived his father but a short time. 
He had married Ann Eldreden on 17 February, 171 3. In the 
marriage record and also in the record of the births of his three 
children, Keziah, Ezekiel and Samuel, he is called " Junior, "|| 

Mis widow Anna was appointed administratrix, 17 July, 
1718,** and on' 13 April, 1744, the real estate was settled on 
the son Ezekiel, he paying certain amounts to his brother Sam- 
uel and to Ann and Keziah, minor children of William Swift 
of Sandwich, the heirs of his sister Keziah, deceased. [Plym. 
Co. Deeds, 9 : 309 ] On 19 April, 1744, Ezekiel sold to Benja- 
min Rider land at Manoment Ponds, " Said granted Premises 
is the Same that was laid out to y e Heirs of my Hon d Father 
Sam 1 Rider deceas d as their Part of the Homestead wheron 
my Grandfather in his Life time dwelt " [Plym. Co. Deeds, 
36 : 179. See also the deed from Samuel 2 to sons Samuel 3 and 
Benjamin 3 printed herewith.] 

Since but one son Samuel survived Samuel 2 Rider, and no 
children of a deceased son Samuel are mentioned in his will,

184 Samuel 2, Rider of Plymouth Had Two Wives 

it is certain that the first son Samuel, born in 1657, died young, 
or before 1688 without issue. 

Samuel 2 and Sarah had another son, John, born about 1663, 
as shown by the affidavit printed herewith, lie survived his 
father and left many children, by two wives. 

Samuel and Sarah (Bartlett) Rider had a third child, a 
daughter Mercy. The only reference to her yet found on the 
records is in her father's will, dated 7 April, 17 14. His state- 
ment that he already has "done Competently for" her, proves 
that she was then married, or of age. The list of births of 
Lydia's children appears to be complete, and since they were 
born so near together it is not probable that Mercy was acci- 
dentally omitted in recording. Moreover the church records 
note the baptisms of Lydia's children Sarah, William, Lydia, 
Samuel, Elizabeth, Joseph and Benjamin, each in the year of 
birth, and it would be strange indeed if Mercy was accidentally 
omitted in both town and church records. 

There can be no question that Mercy was the daughter of 
Sarah (Bartlett) Rider, and it is probable that she was married, 
but no clue to her married name has yet been discovered. 

The following abstracts, of Samuel 2 Rider's deed of gift to 
his sons Samuel 3 and Benjamin 3 , of his will, and of a deposition 
and a deed by his son John, were made from the original 
documents and records.

THE SCROOBY MANOR-HOUSE 

By Morton Dexter 

There seems to be some misunderstanding about the age 
of this house. Several statements recently have come under 
my notice to the effect that it is comparatively modern, and 
is the successor of, and entirely distinct from, the building 
which the Pilgrims knew. These statements appear to be 
mistaken for the following reasons. 

No proof ever has come to light that the house in which 
Elder I^rewster lived was wholly demolished and another erected 
upon its site. There is testimony that in 1637, because it 
had ceased to be needed for use by the Archbishop of' York 
and had fallen into partial decay, considerable was clone in the 
way of tearing it down, but there is no proof that this demolition 
was complete. 

There was no occasion for its entire destruction. From 

*" Janr" was crossed out and "Deer" interlined in the same hand. 



The Scrooby Manor-House 215 

rewster's time to the present a house has been needed on 
e estate for the use of the bailiff or farmer in charge. When 
was no longer required for his own occasional stays by the 
rchbishop it was too large and too costly to be maintained 
r any other use, and the natural course was to demolish the 
rger part of it and to leave standing, and put into proper con- 
tion, so much of it as was required for the uses of a tenant, 
his manifestly is what was done. 

There is distinct, positive and apparently conclusive evidence 
at a portion of the present farmhouse formed a part of the 
palace" or " manor-house " in Brewster's time. All the out- 
lildings — including the cow-house, into which were built the 
.rved beams probably taken from the great hall or the chapel 

the "palace" — must be comparatively recent. But as to 
e farmhouse itself, its construction tells a different story. 

Perhaps half of the- house is essentially modern in character, 
at the other half, the southern, evidently is much older and 
ites back to the time of the original structure. Its walls are 
veral feet thick in several places. It has some of the small 
indows which used to be common three hundred years ago. 
here are one or two niches which no farmhouse ever would 
ive been likely to contain, as well as several large arched win- 
)ws or doorways, now bricked up, which, like the niches, can 
ive had no modern use but would have found a natural place 
a building having, as we know that the original edifice had, 
great hall and a chapel. 

It is difficult to believe that an examination of the house, 
i it is today, and a comparison of it with what is recorded 
)Out the structure in which Brewster lived, can fail in pro- 
icing the conviction that a part of the present building is 
uch older than the remainder, and that this more ancient 
>rtion formed a part of the " manor-house " in which Brewster 
/ed and in which the Pilgrims organized their church and 
anned their escape from England. 

[A full-page cut of the Scrooby Manor-House, accompanying an 
tide, by Mr. Dexter, " In and About Scrooby," will be found in our 
cond volume. Mr. Dexter's invaluable work, " The England and Hol- 
nd of the Pilgrims," published by Houghton, Mifflin & Co., Boston, 1905, 
mtains an extended account of the Manor-House. — Editor.]

242 Adam Wright's Wives and Their Children 

ADAM WRIGHT'S WIVES AND THEIR CHILDREN 

By George Ernest Bowman 

Adam Wright 3 (Hester^ Cooke, Francis 1 ) of Plymouth and 
Plympton, Mass., was twice married and had children by both 
wives, hence it is necessary to determine which children were 
by the first wife and which were by the second. This is of 
especial importance because the children of the first wife, 
Sarah 3 Soule (John 1 , George 1 ) had two Mayflower ancestors, 
Francis Cooke and George Soule ; but the children of the 
second wife, Mehitable Barrow (daughter of George), had only 
one Mayflower ancestor, so far as known. 

The date of Sarah 3 Soule's marriage to Adam Wright, the 
date of her death, and the date of Adam Wright's marriage to 
Mehitable Barrow are unknown. Sarah was living 16 March, 
1 690/1, when she signed the deed printed herewith; but she 
probably died before 1699, -since Mehitable's son Samuel, who 
died 5 January, 1773, in his 74th year, must have been born 
about 1699. [Ante, p. 197.] 

Adam Wright's will, made 9 April, 1723 [Ante, 4:239], 
mentions wife Mehitable; sons John, Isaac, Samuel, Moses, 
James and Nathan ; grandchildren Joshua Pratt and his sister 
Sarah, the children of deceased daughter Esther Pratt ; daugh- 
ter Sarah, the wife of Seth Fuller ; daughter Mary, the wife of 
Jeremiah Gifford ; and daughter Rachel, the wife of Ebenezer 
Barlow. Of these ten sons and daughters but six, John Wright, 
Isaac Wright, Esther Pratt, Sarah Puller, Mary Gifford and 
Rachel Barlow, were children of the first wife, Sarah 3 Soule. 
The other four sons, Samuel Wright, Moses Wright, James 
Wright and Nathan Wright, were children of the second wife, 
Mehitable Barrow. 

The appended abstracts from original records prove that 
Adam Wright was the son of Richard Wright and the grand- 
son of Francis Cooke ; that his first wife, Sarah, was living 
16 March, 1 690/1 ; that his second wife, Mehitable, was the 
daughter of George Barrow of Plympton; that his daughter 
Sarah, the wife of Seth Fuller of Plympton, was living 22 June, 
1725. 

It is evident from the terms of the appended deed, given 
14 November, 1738, by the heirs of Sarah 3 Soule, that the 
grantors named in the deed were, at that date, the only sur- 
viving heirs of Sarah 3 Soule. The deed was signed by John 



Adam Wrights Wives and Their Children 243 

Wright, Isaac Wright, Joshua Dunham and Sarah his wife, 
Ebenezer Barlow and Rachel his wife, and Jeremiah Gifford 
and Mary his wife. Archippus Fuller is named in the deed 
as one of the grantors, but he did not sign it. John and Isaac 
Wright, Rachel Barlow and Mary Gifford are at once identified 
as four of the children of Adam Wright, as named in his will, 
and the confirmatory deed from Archippus Fuller, dated 1 Sep- 
tember, 1742, proves that he was the son and heir of Sarah 
Fuller (another of Adam Wright's daughters), who must have 
died before the deed of 14 November, 1738, was drawn. 

• Joshua Dunham and his wife Sarah are the only other 
grantors (in this deed of 1738) to be identified, and it will be 
shown that Sarah was the only surviving child of Esther 
(Wright) Pratt. Adam Wright's will mentions "my two Grand : 
children : viz : Joshua Pratt & Sarah his sister children of my 
Daughter Esther Pratt dec d " Daniel Pratt and Esther Wright 
were married 23 January, 1 700/1,* and had two children 
recorded at Plympton, Joshua, 27 December, 1701, and Sarah, 
1 October, 1703. Immediately following these two births are 
recorded Daniel Pratt's children, Benjamin and Esther, " by 
Mary his wife" [Ante, 5 : 183] The date of Esther (Wright) 
Pratt's death has not been found, but Daniel Pratt married, 
second, Mary Washburn, on 1 October, 1706.! lie married 
a third wife, Annis, as shown by his will, but I have not 
attempted to identify her. 

Daniel Pratt died at Plympton, 7 May, 1739, in his 59th 
year, and his widow died 21 February, 1760, in her 77th year. 
[Ante, 10:220, 221] His will, dated 30 March, 1739, and 
proved 18 May, 1739, mentions wife Annis, sons Benjamin, 
Nathaniel, Jabez, James (under age) and Joshua (under age), 
daughter " Easter the wife of John Howard " and "my Loveing 
Daughter Sarah y e wife of Joshua Donham " [Plymouth Co. 
Prob. Reds. 8 : 46] As the son Joshua Pratt was under age 
on 30 March, 1739, he must have been born after 30 March, 
1 7 18, therefore he could not have been Esther (Wright) Pratt's 
son Joshua, who was born in 1701, and was mentioned in Adam 
Wright's will dated 9 April, 1723. Esther's son Joshua, there- 
fore, died between 9 April, 1723, and 14 November, 1738, the 
date of the deed by Sarah 3 Soule's heirs. In the Plymouth 
town records we find: " Joshua Dunham Published To Sarah 
Pratt ffebruary 16 th 1722/23" [1 :26s] and "The Children of 
Joshua Donham & Sarah Donham his wife " The children 
were: James, 16 December, 1723; Sarah, 26 January, 1725/6; 

* Plymouth Town "Records, I : 133. t Ibid., I : 135; 



244 Adam Wright's Wives and TJieir Children 

Joshua, 27 November, 1727, died young; Mercy, 8 November, 
1729; Bathshua, 7 January, 1731/2; Elizabeth, 10 June, 1733; 
Joshua, 15 February, 1735/6; Lucy, 18 February, 1737/8; 
Levi, 1 June, 1743; Elisha, 25 November, 1744. [1:106] 

On 14 November, 1738, therefore, Sarah 3 Soule's heirs 
were her sons John Wright and Isaac Wright, her daughters 
Mary Gifford and Rachel Barlow, and her grandchildren Archip- 
pus Fuller (only heir of his mother, Sarah Wright) and Sarah 
(Pratt) Dunham (only surviving heir of her mother, Esther 
Wright).

RECORDS FROM THE OLD NORTH CEMETERY, 
TRURO, MASS. 

Communicated by Stanley W. Smith 

In September, 1909, the writer, with Messrs. Edward H. 
Whorf, Clarence P. Whorf, Arthur M. Jones and John W. 
Willard, visited the Old North Cemetery in Truro, Mass., and 
with great care compared with the gravestones there all the 
data printed in the pamphlet " Inscriptions From Gravestones 
in the Old North Cemetery, Truro, Mass., From 17 13 to 
1840."* The errors in the pamphlet were carefully noted; 
and all other inscriptions in the cemetery, dated prior to 185 1, 
with a few of later date, were copied and verified. A few 
stones were found, of earlier date than 1840, which had been 
overlooked by the compiler of the pamphlet. 

The work of one member of the party, not the present 
writer, calls for especial mention. Nearly two entire days were 
spent by him in a very careful search for pieces of the grave- 
stone shown in the accompanying illustration, and in fitting 
together the parts found. Nearly all the fragments had been 
long buried in the ground, some of them at quite a distance 
from the original stone, yet eighty or more pieces, some of 
them less than one-half an inch long, were recovered. All but 
six small pieces, each under one inch in length, were fitted 
into their proper places, and the inscription, with the exception 
of the third figure of the year, can now be read without diffi- 
culty. The small remaining portion of the doubtful figure in 
the year shows that this figure must have been " 3 " or " 5 ", 
and the uncertainty is removed by the inscription on the foot- 
stone, which reads: " M 1 ' Jonathan Harding 1752" 

* Provincetown, Mass., 1897. 



2 Records from Old North Cemetery, Truro 

The inscription on the headstone reads as follows : " H[EJRE 
LIES THE BO[DY] OF [J]ONAT[ITAN | HARDING 
DIE[D] JUN[E] 26 th i7(5]2 IN THE 41 st YEAR OF 
[H]IS AGE." 

A corrected copy of the pamphlet and the additional copies 
of inscriptions, necessary to make the record complete to 185 1, 
have been presented to the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower 
Descendants. The following abstracts present the genealogical 
facts contained in all inscriptions, dated prior to 185 1, found 
in this old cemetery. 



I . [There are two old slate stones, in different parts of 

the cemetery, each of which bears the inscription "I A" 
without date.]

consisting of the following persons, viz : Paul Dudley Sar-

BARTLETT NOTES 

By George Ernest Bowman 



Under the general title of "Bartlett Notes " we shall print, 
from time to time, abstracts from the numerous notes made by 
the Editor, from original records and documents, relating to the 
descendants of Robert Bartlett of Plymouth, who married Mary 2 
Warren, daughter of Richard 1 Warren of The Mayflower. 

In this issue we give abstracts of all the probate records, 
and unrecorded documents remaining in the probate files of 
Plymouth County, relating to the estate of Joseph Bartlett 3 
{Mary 1 Warren, Richard 1 ) of Plymouth. The proper reference 
is noted in each case. 

Joseph Bartlett 3 died 18 February, 171 r, in his 73d year, 
and his wife, Hannah 2 Pope (Thomas 1 ), died 12 March, 17 10, 
in her 72d year. [Gravestones, Burial Hill.] 

The settlement of Joseph's estate shows that there were 
four sons and three daughters, viz : Robert Bartlett 4 , Joseph 
Bartlett 4 (died before his father), Elnathan Bartlett 4 , Benjamin 
Bartlett 4 , Hannah, the wife of Joseph Sylvester, Mary, the wife 
of John Barnes, and Sarah, the wife of Elisha Holmes.

The chh set apart April, 26 : to be kept as a day of Thanks- 
giving for peace, health, supplyes of corne & provision by 
contribution from Connecticott & from Dublin in Ireland. 

A Brother was laid under the highest censure, & upon his 
repentance was againe reconciled to the chh the yeare afte[r] 

August, 8 : the chh condescended soe far as to take in 
private the relation of Samuel Cutbert, & the Elder the ne[xt] 
Sabbath declaring some part of it in the publick congregation, 
he was admitted to full communion. 

At the same chh meeting, it was agreed to renew the 
monethly chh-conference meetings, which by reason of the late 
wars had bin laid aside, that exersise began, Aug: 30. 

In 1678 : Lords supper was 9 times, one member" was 
admitted, 1 1 children baptized : 

A Brother dealt with for inordinate walking, did humble 
himself e, & was rebuked & soe it was passed over. 

The chh set apart March, 27 : as a day of Fasting & prayer 
for continuance of peace healing the small pox, & for sundry 
of our ministers that were languishing & for other mercies.

September, 1 1 : was kept on the same account, & also for 
saints under persecution, especially then in Scotland, & that 
God would poure out a spirit of converting grace upon the 
rising generation. 

[p. 10] The chh kept, November, 6 : a day of publick Thanks- 
giving, fur continuance of our Gospel & civill liberties, for 
preserving this place from the small pox, for good harvest & 
peace as to the heathen : 

A chh-child was at a private chh-meeting admonished for 
sin. 

Catechizing was againe begun, December 4 : in the Assem- 
blies Catechisme. 

Dec: 19 : our brother M r Samuel Fuller being called to 
preach at midlebury did aske counsell of the chh, which motion 
they tooke into serious consideration till the next chh-meeting, 
which was on Jan: 16 :.& then the chh did unanimously advise 
& encourage him to attend preaching to them as oft as he could, 
but not yet to remove his family, but waite a while to see what 
further encouragement God might give for his more settled 
attendance upon that service there. 

A chh-child for evill words & carriages was then Admon- 
ished, who had formerly bin reprooved by the Elders more 
privately. 

January, 1 2 : the Pastor desired all the chh-seed who were 
heads of families to come to his house on Jan: 19 : which they 
generally did & He then gave them sundry questions for them 
each man severally to retume answers unto out of the scrip- 
tures ; Hereby might be discerned what knowledge they had 
of Gods word ; This Exercise was to be attended once in two 
rnoneths, & soe it was for divers yeares, not without a blessing 
& some good successe, for men of 30, 40, 50 yeares of age did 
attend & give their answers to those Divinity Questions in 
writing, then the Pastor having read all their answers, gave his 
owne to each Ques: & preached thereupon, the Elder alwayes 
present & making the concluding prayer, & ordinarily many if 
not most of the chh were then present also. 

In 1679 : the Lords Supper was 9 times, five members were 
admitted, 19 children Baptized. 

April, 16 : was appointed by the chh for Fasting & Prayer, 
for the rising generation & other mercies.

with solemne warning. 

The chh of Rehoboth sent to us for messengers to attend 
their ordination of m r Samuel Angier to be their Pastor, octo-

ber, 1 5 : the Pastor, Elder, M r Fuller & Bro: Thomas Cushman 
were chosen & did attend that service. 

The chh set apart February, 25 : to be kept as a day of 
Thanksgiving publickly for all the mercies of the yeare, spirituall 
& temporall. 

In 1680 : Lords Supper was 9 times, two members were 
admitted, 5 children baptized : 

At a private chh-meeting, April, 5 : the chh voted that all 
the Contribution of strangers should by the Deacons be given 
to the Pastor, & as a Testimony of their Love to him, gave 
him six pounds & six shillings out of the Treasury of the chh. 
The chh gave twenty shillings out of Capt willets Legacy to 
the chh, to Elder Cushman. 

Two of our members who lived at Swanzey sent to us to 
desire their dismissions to the chh there, the chh met Nov: 18 : 
& agreed the Elders should in their name returne answer in 
the Negative, because the bretheren of Swanzey renounced 
communion with us or soe much as to be present when wee 
administred Infant Baptisme & did rebaptize our chh-seed. 

The chh of Duxbury sent to us to be present by our mes- 
sengers at their ordination of M r Ichabod Wiswall to be their 
Pastor, on November, 24 : the Pastor, Ruling Elder, Deacon 
Finney & Deac: Morton were chosen & then present. 

A chh-meeting was called by the Elders to be on February, 
10 : It was then moved to the chh by Elder that wee should 
doe well to set apart a day yea dayes for Humiliation for 
sundry weighty causes then named, the chh manifested their 
readynesse to comply therewith. 

At this meeting the Elders told the chh, a Brother earnestly 
desired the Psalmes might be read in publick worship, because 
else he was incapable of practising that ordinance ; The matter 
was much agitated, the Elder propounded to the chh to speake 
man by man, whether they Judged reading the Psalmes in order 
to singing was lawfull & that they could rest in the practise 
of it. The issue of the meeting was the chh desired the Pastor 
that he would in his publick Preaching hold [p. n] forth from 
scripture the lawfullnesse & necessity of reading the Psalmes, 
which he exprest his willingnesse & purpose to doe, & till then 
the practise of reading might be deferred.

GRAVESTONE RECORDS FROM THE OLD 

CEMETERY AT "THE GREEN/' 

MIDDLEBOROUGH, MASS. 

Communicated by John W. Willard 

In October, 1907, and October, 1908, the writer made 
copies of all inscriptions dated prior to 185 1, with a few of 
later date, found in the old cemetery at " The Green," in Mid- 
dleborough, Mass. These copies were very carefully compared 
with the records from this cemetery printed by Charles M. 
Thatcher in "The Genealogical Quarterly Magazine " * and it's 
successor, "The Genealogical Magazine,"* and the numerous 
differences in names, ages and dates were noted. In Novem- 
ber, 1909, with the assistance of Messrs. Stanley W. Smith, 
Arthur M. Jones and the late Edward H. Whorf, the copies 
made by the present writer were carefully compared with the 
original stones, and especial attention was given to all cases in 
which these copies did not agree with the Thatcher copies. 
This comparison disclosed the fact that there arc more than 
two hundred and sixty (260) errors, of name, age or date, in 
the Thatcher copies as* printed, and that there are in the ceme- 
tery forty (40) stones dated prior to 1850 (including ten prior 
to 1800) which were overlooked by Mr. Thatcher. 

A few of the more important errors should be especially 
noted at this time. Francis " Bohney " should have been 
printed "Pomory." "Nathan, son of " William Cushman 
should be " Welthea, daughter of." " Matthias " Ellis should 
be "Lucy, wife of Matthias." "Martha, wife of" Joseph 
Faunce should be " Hannah, widow of." " Elorance," relict 
of Lieut. Nelson Finney should be "Rosamond." "Elisha" 
Freeman, 18 10, should be "Nancy, wife of Elisha." Elizabeth, 

♦Boston, Mass., 1 903-1 906.

66 Records from the Old Cemetery, MiddleboroitgJi 

wife of Joseph " Morton," and Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph 
and Elizabeth " Morton," should, in both cases, be " Clarke " 
instead of "Morton." Charles Gilbert Nichols, "son of Charles 
G." should be " son of James G." Fraricena, Marcena S. and. 
J. Almedia, all three printed as daughters of James P. and Per- 
sia L. Sparrow, were daughters of Ivory H. and Jerusha B. 
Thompson. "William, son of John and Martha." Soule, should 
be "Nathan, son of." "Mrs. Lucy F." Thomas should be 
"Lucy, widow of Ezra" Thomas. "Mrs. Martha" Tomson 
should be " Martha, widow of Thomas Tomson of Halifax." 
Francis Thompson, died 17 December, 1798, aged 63 years, 
should have " 9 months, 2 days " added to his age ; and " Fran- 
cis " Thompson died "Dec. 17, 1798, in his 85 year" should 
be "Mary, wife of -Francis, died 17 December, 1829, in her 85th 
year." " Mrs. Content " Weston should be " Miss Content." 

The copies made by the present writer, which were twice 
carefully checked by the original stones, were presented to the 
Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, and all the 
genealogical facts contained in the inscriptions will be found 
in the following abstracts. 

The illustration accompanying this article shows the grave- 
stones of the two wives of Jeremiah Thomas, Lydia, who died 
6 July, 1717, in her 5 2d year, and Mary, who survived her 
husband and died 15 November, 1749, in her 85th year. Jere- 
miah Thomas died 2 February, 1736, in his 77th year, and lies 
buried between his wives, with Lydia at the right and Mary at 
the left. At the bottom of Lydia's stone is the following : 
" She was y e first person buried in this place " ; and Mary's 
stone bears the same inscription. A careful comparison of the 
two stones shows that they are of the same size and have 
exactly the same ornamentation. Tt seems probable, therefore, 
that the stonecutter was directed to make a duplicate of the 
first wife's stone, except as to name, date and age, and followed 
his instructions too literally.

WHITE NOTES 

By the Editor 
{Continued from Vol. IX, p. 220) 

The records here presented were transcribed by the Editor 
from the original records of Rochester, Mass. They relate to 
the families of Samuel 3 White (Resolved 2 , William 1 ) ; of three 
of his sons, John 4 , Samuel 4 and Malatiah 4 ; and of two of his 
grandsons, John 6 and Thomas 5 , sons of John 4 . 

The record of Samuel 3 White's family does not mention the 
given name of his wife, but it states that she was born about 
13 March, 1646. Samuel 3 White sold land in 167 1, and he, 
with wife Rebecca, acknowledged the deed in 1677.* Since 
his wife was named Rebecca, and was born about 1 3 March, 
1646, she must have been the Rebecca White who died at 
Rochester, 25 June, 171 1, in her 65th year. Rebecca's maiden 
name has not been discovered.

ALEXANDER 2 STANDISH'S WILL AND INVENTORY 
AND THE SETTLEMENT OF HIS ESTATE 

By George Ernest Bowman 

Alexander 2 Standish (Capt. Myles 1 ) of Duxbury was 
twice married. His first wife was Sarah 2 Alden (john x ) y but 
the date of their marriage, the dates on which their children 
were born, and the date of Sarah's death are unknown. The 
second wife was Desire 2 (Doty) (Sherman) Holmes, the widow 
of William Sherman and of Israel Holmes, and the daughter of 
Edward 1 Doty of the Mayflower. The date of the marriage 
of Alexander and Desire has not been discovered, but the births 
of their tbree children, and Desire's death, we have already 
printed. [Ante, 7 : 1 34, 12 148.] 

Alexander 2 Standish made his will 21 February, -1701/2, 
and added a codicil 5 July, 1702, and the will was probated 
10 August, 1702. Four of the daughters by the first wife, 
with their husbands, contested the will, and a copy of the 
"Caveat" is in the probate files. From this document, which 
seems to have been overlooked by other writers, we learn that 
Alexander Standish died 6 July, 1702, " being about 76 years 
of age"; that he had two sons and five daughters by his first 
wife and " lived a widdower many years " after her death ; that 
at least four of the daughters by Sarah 2 Alden were married 
before their father's second marriage, and that this second 
marriage took place about sixteen years before he died. 

The will was approved by the probate court, but in the 
following year the daughters by the first wife, and their hus- 
bands, petitioned for the distribution among them of some land 
which had not been disposed of by the will. The son Miles 8 
opposed such distribution, claiming the whole. The probate 
court ordered the land settled on Miles ; \ as the eldest son, he 
paying specified amounts to each of his brothers and sisters. 



IOO Alexander 1 Standish' s Will and Inventory 

The records, and unrecorded papers in the files, in the 
Plymouth County Registry of Probate are too numerous to 
be printed at one time, therefore they will be presented in 
chronological order, and will be completed in our next issue. 
The proper reference will be given with each record, or 
unrecorded paper.

[The Caveat] 

[From unrecorded paper] The Caveat or Contest of y e Will of 
M r Standish 

Plimouth August y e 10 th 1702 To y e Honoured William 
Bradford Esq r Sir There having been a paper presented to your 
self as y e Supposed last will and Testament of m r Alexander 
Standish late of Duxborough deceased for probate and your 
Approbation of the same We therefore y e Subscribers five of 
y e sons in law in y e Right and behalf of our selves and his 
daughters our Wives Humbly offer our Reasons against y e 
probate thereof which are as followeth. 

first We Conceive your self hath not Sufficient power to 
make probate of wils &c since y e Death of y e late king not 
having had a Commission for your so doing from her present 
Majesty Queen Anne. 

2 d ly We say y e said pretended will ought not to be proved 
nor approved for these Reason [s] viz 1 : 1 for that Every man 
that makes a will ought to be of sound mind and memory that 
is to say : as y e law explains it to be able to make a disposition 
of his estate with Reason and understanding And for this we 
Instance that famouse case of y e Marquess of Winchester y e 
31 : of Eliz in y e Kings Bench Reported by y e lord chief Jus- 
tice Coke : In which Case it was Resolved that a Testator at 
y e making of his will ought to be of a memory not only to 
Answer ordinary & familiar Questions but also have a. disposing 
memory so as to be able to make a disposition of his lands with 
Reason and understanding And that is such a memory which 
y e law Calls Sanre Memoriae. Now we say that our said 
ffather being about 76 years of age when he dyed was not only 
through age decayed but otherwise also So as he was not of a 
disposing mind to will his estate with Reason and understanding 
as by y e pretended Will it Self is Manifest And this is so essen- 
tiall to y e making of a will that tho he made it himself and 
named an executor and had witness that saw him sign seal 
and declare the same for his will as it seemes they did and 
they thought he was of a disposing mind also : yet if by y e will 
it self and manner of disposall it appear otherwise as in truth 
this Pretended Will doth All is nothing worth and voyd of it 
self And it must be a mans own actions that must prove him 
to be wanting of memory and understanding for to make his 
will which this his writing will plainly demonstrate if it be 
Considered. 

1 The state of his family He had by his first wife who was 



106 Alexander 1 Standistis Will and Inventory 

daughter to y e Worshipfull M r John Alden a good and a prudent 
woman two sons and 5 daughters and after her decease he lived 
a widdower many years until] all his sd 5 daughters] or 4 of 
them were marryed to whome he gave very little and to some 
of them nothing at all in his life time but promised to Consider 
them in his will. About 16 years before he dyed he marryed a 
second wife who what estate she had Reserved it to her self at 
marriage. By her he had two sons and one daughter. To 
Ebenezer his Second son by his first wife he gave about one 
hundred pounds being y e produce of Some part of his farm 
which himself sold by Deed in his life time. 

2 d ly Consider y e estate he left when he dyed his farm in 
Duxborough apprized at 400 pounds his lands at Bridgewater 
apprised at 200 pounds his movables of all sorts at 1 1 7 pounds 

3 d ly And now let y e paper called his will be Considered he 
began it in ffebruary last and end it in y e 5 th of July last 1702 
y e day before he dyed. Time long enough to have disposed of 
his estate well Had he been of a disposing memory. 

1 He Gives to his Eldest Son Miles which he had by his 
first wife his farm he lived on in Duxborough . yet so words 
it that y e Greatest part of the meadow is excluded out of 
y e Bounds he sets to it so that y e most part of his meadow is 
left wholly undisposed of 

2 He so Incumbers his ffarm which he gives his son afore- 
said first by keeping of Cows and sheep for his widdovv 2 by 
providing her with fire wood at her doore 3 by providing her 
bread Corne of all sorts 4 by her sons 5 acres of good land 
within fence and this will hold during their lives what manure 
they please to dongue it : 5^ The use of his Teame and all 
sorts' of Husbandry Instruments . And to his Widdow y e Com- 
mand of all the house w th severall other Incumbrances . And 
were y e ffarme with y e meadow afores d let it would not yield 
nor were worth above ten Pounds p r annum . And it is more 
worth than 20 pounds p r annum to performe those things Given 
out of it so that his son must needs give more than ten pounds 
a year to his Mother in law & her sons more than y e farm will 
yield if he had had y e meadow with it And thus he hath made 
his eldes[t]' son a servant for life or to pay her and hers ten 
pounds p r annu[m] for nothing that is to say being no ways 
enabled to pay it but by his own labour And altho his Eldest 
son having Married her daughter will to please his Mother in 
law or for fear of displeasing of her take up with y e will yet it 
proves nevertheless that his flat her was not of a disposing mind 
and memory for y e Argument that we are upon is to prove from 



Alexande? 2 Standish's Will and Inventory 107 

his own writing that he was not Capable to dispose of his estate 
with Reason and understanding and y e sons acceptance of an 
Irationall will Can not make the Will Rationall 

2 d ly He Cuts off his 5 Daughters which he had by his first 
wife onely with 5 shillings apeece All married as was said before 
and each a mother of Sundrey children well disposed women 
and borne of as Good a mother & prudent a woman as any in 
her day in y e town where she lived And there Can be no Reason 
Rendered why he should so do only that he was not Sanae 
Memoriae. 

3 d ly He Gives his wife besides what she brought with her 
one third part of all his movables yet so disposes of his movable 
estate to his three children he had by her as he leaves not 
Sufficient to pay his debts and for her thirds undisposed of 
This was Surely for want of memory or understanding. 

4 th ly Sundrey other things there are in y e said writing 
very absurd as the disposing of his Teame &c sundrey ways y e 
disposing of some things sundrey times y e disposing of what 
was not his own y e doubtfull and Indistinct wording his be- 
quests which will occasion much trouble & difficulty to under- 
stand his meaning with severall other Incongrueties which 
makes it yet more plaine he wanted Reason and understanding. 

5 And finally he Gives to his wife & y e three children he 
had by her all his estate both Real and personall in hand and in 
hope and more than ten pounds p r annum over and above what 
all his estate will produce to be paid and performed by his 
eldest son whome he makes his Executor but leaves him nothing 
to pay it with but his own labour so that he must be her servant 
for sell his farm he Cannot And he has little meadow to enable 
him to perform those Injunctions layd upon him y e most part of 
y e meadow being undisposed of. Surely all men must needs say 
in making this will he wanted Reason & understanding which is 
y e principal essence of a will. And that it is much better for all 
y e family to declare it null & voyd for which cause we say y e 
same ought to be Quashed & declared to be null and voyd to all 
Intents and purposes. All which Humbly offered by us the 
Subscribers

BENJAMIN CHANDLER'S CHILDREN 

By George Ernest Bowman 

From the town and church records of Scituate, Mass., we 
learn that Benjamin and Elizabeth Chandler, of Scituate (and 
later of Duxbury), had children : Martha, Samuel, John, Mary, 
Keturah and Benjamin, born between 1672 and 1685. The 
abstracts from the probate and land records herewith printed 
prove that the Benjamin Chandler whose estate was settled 
17 March, 1 691/2, was the father of these children, and of 
two more, Joseph and Elizabeth, who have not been found on 
the town or church records ; they prove also that the widow 
Elizabeth Chandler, who made her will 22 April, 1728, was 
the mother of the eight children named, and, therefore, could 
not have been the widow of Edmund Chandler of Duxbury, as 



Benjamin Chandlers Children 109 

claimed by other writers. These abstracts further prove that 
Martha, the wife of Isaac Simmons, was the oldest daughter 
of Benjamin and Elizabeth Chandler, and, therefore, was not a 
daughter of Edmund and Elizabeth (Alden) Chandler, as has 
been claimed by others. 

The settlement of Benjamin Chandler's estate shows that 
he left a widow Elizabeth, also four sons and four daughters, 
all under age, but not mentioned by name. 

The three deeds given by Samuel, Benjamin and Joseph 
Chandler, to their " Brother John Chandler ", of parts of the 
estate of their father Benjamin Chandler, clearly identify the 
four sons of Benjamin and Elizabeth Chandler. 

The will of Elizabeth Chandler, widow, /names the same 
four sons, Samuel, John, Benjamin and Joseph, and three 
daughters, Mary, Keturah and Elizabeth. Of the six children 
recorded at Scituate we have, therefore, identified five, Samuel, 
John, Mary, Keturah and Benjamin, as the children of Widow 
Elizabeth Chandler in 1728. 

The oldest daughter, Martha, married Isaac Simmons, had 
four children, Deborah, Sarah, Isaac and Priscilla, born between 
1696 and 1709 [Ante, viii : 178 and vi : 69], and died before 
her mother's will was made. The record of the marriage of 
Isaac Simmons and Martha Chandler has not been found, but 
Martha is named as the mother in the birth record of each 
child. We find also, in the Marshfield First Church records, 
under date of 5 December, 1708, "martha simons was receaved 
into this church wife to Isaac Simons ", and under date of 
19 August, 17 1 7, " martha simons had 4 children baptised viz 
deborah Sarah Isaac & one so frowerd would not be baptised " 
Three of these children are mentioned in Elizabeth Chandler's 
will, receiving one-fourth of the residuary estate. Elizabeth 
Chandler did not mention her daughter Martha in her will, but 
since the three children of Isaac and Martha Simmons received 
the same amount that was given to each of the three living 
daughters, Mary, Keturah and Elizabeth, it is certain that these 
Simmons children were widow Elizabeth Chandler's grandchil- 
dren, although their relationship is not stated in the will. 

[Benjamin Chandler's Estate, 169 i] 

[Plymouth Co. Prob. Records, 1 : 128] An inventory of the

HOPKINS-SMITH NOTES 

By George Ernest Bowman 

Under the general title of " Hopkins-Smith Notes " we 
shall print, from time to time, abstracts from the numerous 
notes made by the Editor, from original documents and records, 
relating to the descendants of Mary 3 Hopkins (Gyles' 1 , StepJien 1 ). 
She married Samuel Smith of Eastham, 3 January, 1665, and 
had seven children recorded at Eastham : a son (died unnamed), 
Samuel, Mary, Joseph, John, Grace and Rebecca.* Joseph, 
Grace and Rebecca died without issue, before their parents. 
Samuel died before his parents, but left two sons. John and 
Mary, who had married Daniel Hamilton, survived their parents, 
and both left issue. 

In this article we give abstracts of all the records, in the 
Barnstable County, Mass., Registry of Probate, relating to the 
settlement of the estates of Samuel Smith, Jr., in 1692 ; of 
Samuel Smith, Sr., in 1697 ; and of Mary (Hopkins) Smith,

WILLIAM WHITE OF DARTMOUTH NOT A SON 
OF SAMUEL 3 WHITE OF ROCHESTER 

By George Ernest Bowman 

Samuel 3 White (Resolved' 1 , William 1 ) of Rochester, Mass., 
had a son William 4 , born 6 June, 1690. [See "White Notes," 
page 97 of this issue.] It has been claimed that this William 4 
settled in Dartmouth, Mass., and married Elizabeth the daughter 
of George and Hannah (Hathaway *) Cadman, but those who 
have pressed this claim have not presented any evidence in its 
support. They have merely asserted that William 4 (Sanmcl^), 
of Rochester, and William of Dartmouth were identical. 

The date of the marriage of William White and Elizabeth 
Cadman has not been found, but their daughter Sarah was mar- 
ried in 1726. If Sarah's father was the William 4 (Samuel' 6 ) 
born in 1690, both father and daughter must have married very 
voting. It was not impossible for a daughter to marry when 
her father was only thirty-six years old, but such cases are so 
unusual that they should not be accepted without ample con- 
temporary evidence. In the present case such evidence has 
not been produced. On the contrary, convincing evidence that 
the two Williams were not identical has been known to me since 
the summer of 1901, when I made the transcript, printed in our 
third volume, of the vital records scattered through the earliest 
volume of the Dartmouth town records. It was necessary to 

* Hannah Hathaway was the daughter of Arthur Hathaway and Sarah 3 
Cooke, and granddaughter of John 2 Cooke (Prancis 1 ) and Sarah 2 Warren 
.{Richard 1 ).

examine every page of the original witli the greatest* care, so 
that none of the vital records should be overlooked While 
making this examination I took notes also of all miscellaneous 
records which seemed to be connected with the Mayflower 
families. One item noted was the record, on page 37 of the 
original, of the election, on 5 July, 1705, of William White as 
a petit juror. Since William White of Dartmouth was elected 
juror in 1705, he must have been, on that date, at least twenty- 
one years of age, and must have been, at that time, a legal 
resident of the town. But William 1 White (Samite/' 6 ) of Roch- 
ester, if living, was only one month more than fifteen years old, 
in July, 1705, and was then a resident of Rochester, where his 
mother was still living, although his father may have died before 
that date. It is evident, therefore, that William White of Dart- 
mouth and William 4 White (Samuel*) of Rochester were not 
identical. 

Since I first noted this election of William White of Dart- 
mouth, in 1705, I have examined, and made abstracts of, hun- 
dreds of probate, land and town records, in an effort to learn 
his origin, and to determine what became of William 4 White 
(Samuel' 6 ) of Rochester, but have not yet been able to solve 
either problem, and have not even been able to prove that 
William 4 of Rochester was alive in 1705. The only record of 
William 4 (Samuel*) yet found is that of his birth.

Transckibei) by the Editor 
{Continued from page j,/) 

In our last issue we completed the transcript of the vital 
records in the earliest volume of the Duxhury town records. 
We now begin the vital records in the volume labeled "Pro- 
prietors of the Second Division 171 2-1754 Births by Families." 
In the back of this book are thirty-seven pages containing birth, 
marriage and death records, from 1699 to 1 77 1. This part of 
the book is paged separately, the first vital record being on 
page three. 

It is evident that this volume of records was unknown to 
Justin Winsor, when he wrote his History of the Town of Dux- 
bury, published in 1849, and as subsequent writers seem to have
